This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues associated with repetitive stress injuries through the application of current clinical evidence. A thorough review of tendon/nerve physiology, pathomechanics, and surgical techniques will create a foundation for proper intervention. This foundation will then be used to develop assessment and treatment approaches to pathology associated with repetitive stress injuries. Course content includes current conservative and surgical treatment options, ergonomic assessment/intervention, imaging, post-surgical guidelines, splinting options, joint and soft tissue mobilization, modalities and specific therapeutic exercise techniques. The student will participate in lecture and small group discussion before implementing assessment and treatment strategies in laboratory sessions.

  • Identify current evidence that applies to evaluation and treatment of pathologies presented
  • Select appropriate orthotic and immobilization strategies to support tissue healing and regeneration
  • Identify sound bio-psychosocially based treatment plans for management of tendon and nerve pain in the upper extremity.
  • Demonstrate soft tissue mobilization techniques to support remediation of presented pathologies.
  • Identify appropriate activity modification and lifestyle redesign to support tissue healing and regeneration.

Participants Comments
